About Idlewild Winery

Idlewild is Sam Bilbro, a winemaker who grew up at a winery learning the practice at his father’s hip. Idlewild sources fruit from two vineyards in Mendocino Valley. Wild Ruth Farming runs both. WRF a collaboration between Idlewild and Ruth Lewandowski Wines. Holistic farming ensures that the site and vintage are the emphases. Each wine is unique and treated as such. The common thread is balancing depth and seriousness with vibrancy and joy. Emphasis is on the vineyard followed by minimalist winemaking techniques. This is an honest and sustainable approach is fundamental in making wines of purity.

About the Lost Hills Ranch Vineyard

Lost Hills Ranch is a dream. The beautiful loneliness of the open hills and the sentinel oaks covered in Spanish moss project out a sense of calm. The vineyard sits at 1500 ft of elevation. The roots work hard to dig into fractured sandstone with schist veins and a thin top layer of sandy clay. The Yorkville Highlands AVA sits along the southwest corner of Mendocino county. Maritime and continental climates clash here.

About the Fox Hill Vineyards

Fox Hill Vineyard is one of the most unique vineyards in Northern California. Located southeast of Ukiah on Mendocino’s Talmage Bench. The soils are well-drained with high concentrations of gravel, quartz, and sandstone. Planter Lowell Stone decided to buck every trend and simply plant what he wanted to. Many trips to Italy turned to inspiration and the wild spectrum of varieties began to take root.
